Churchill Mortgage announced that customers with second homes will receive a discounted membership rate to 3RD HOME, an elite membership club designed to serve as a safe and trustworthy way to expand the use of second homes without the hassles of renting.
By joining 3RD HOME, members list their own private vacation home on a member website and select weeks they agree to make the home available to other members. To reserve a vacation home, members simply access the site and select the home and destination desired. 3RD HOME offers hundreds of destinations to choose from and each property is fully furnished.
“Through our consultative approach to lending and strong commitment to local communities, we are a trusted resource for financial services,” said Mike Hardwick, president of Churchill Mortgage. “We aim to establish long lasting relationships based on honesty, integrity and trust, and to achieve this, Churchill not only provides outstanding service, but we also offer truly relevant benefits. A second home is often people’s most underutilized asset, and providing easier access to 3RD HOME’s services will enable our customers to more fully benefit from and enjoy their investment.”
Churchill Mortgage continues to be innovative in helping more individuals become homeowners. The lender recently began accepting online mortgage loan applications via an integrated point-of-sale solution (IPOS). In 2011, the lender started considering alternative credit information like rent, utilities and insurance bills, to gain a better understanding of consumers’ creditworthiness and better match borrowers to appropriate loan products.
